This concludes the October 2008 edition of the Creative Carnival. THANK YOU for submitting your links! If you would like to see an excerpt of your NaNoWrimo project showcased in the November 8th, 2008 edition, please submit your links here. (Details for the November NaNoWrimo Carnivals are below).

Please, one link per blog. If you submit more than one link per blog, I will only use the first link submitted. If you submitted your link and don’t see it here, that probably means I received it after the deadline.

Thanks for visiting the carnival participants and don’t forget to check back December 13th for the next (regularly scheduled) Creative Carnival.


**NaNoWriMos – do you want to submit a portion of your project during the November Creative Carnivals? Every Saturday in November (beginning November 8th), we’ll host a Creative Carnival featuring an excerpt from your NaNoWriMo projects. (The November CC is only for NaNoWriMo participants. Please do not submit your links if you’re not participating in the program – they will be ignored. Thank you).

Begining November 8th, Write Anything will post links to an excerpt (no more than 1,000 words, please) from your NaNoWriMo project. Here’s how it works:

1. Look over that week’s NaNoWriMo writing.

2. Pick your best excerpt.

3. Submit it to the NaNoWriMo Carnival.

4. Feel free to introduce the excerpt in the submission form (so your entry will read like this: Karen presents Crazy Like a Fox posted at Write From Karen saying, “This excerpt takes place after a major, life-changing event in my protagonist’s life. I thought this piece was worthy of the Carnival because it showcases the myriad of emotions she deals with.”)

5. Take a SHORT break from your crazy NaNoWriMo schedule on Saturday and read your fellow NaNoWriMo’s excerpts. Provide feedback (if the author desires feedback) and encouragement.

I must reiterate: The Creative Carnival will post every Saturday in November beginning November 8th and will only be for NaNoWriMo participants. The Creative Carnival will resume a normal posting schedule beginning in December. Thank you.
